Mr. Kiley aod Mr. Ilolden in movingi maiden efforts and while they attempted aothing at all ambitious in I tha oratorical line made a favorable impressicn. Then Mr. Robertson es-iasyedthe opcCing speech in reply. It I was quite up to his arerage effort, jbut one could not kslp repeating as be wasdered oa: "Of all sad Words of tongue or pon The saddest are' it mig(ht have be�i." If tho result in Gleiclien bad 'been diffei-ent, there would have been a difTennt sort of a debate. Two linos were recently addtjd to the above familiar couplet: "And then to make another verse. It might have bt�n a good deal worse." They do not apply to tha situatiion in the legislature, however. It could not I>e worse. Mr. Uiley referred to the opposition as "almost invisH I'e" The description is correct for the greater part of tho time. It would be well if it applied to ' them at all times. They do their test, we sill recognize, and the blamo i is not with them. It is/for the pco- i pie of the province to find a remedy. How long will they be in doing so?'

'� ThcPrPTOier m his reply coverddl considerable tcrritorj- nni had no difliculiy in d-'fending his a'dnninis -tration from tha cri'ticism lorallcd at it by M|.. Ik)bertson. With the most of the nrntlers, with which thc msm-bem of the Opposition daalt, tha Alberta Oovemm'ent hart nothing to do. For instance, Mr. Robertson claimed that the census was t�,ken impiioperly last June. But this is a purely I'omiininn matter. He regretted that Al'berta was falling be-hinil Saskatchewan in Parliameo'tafy representation. But it is not doing so. In tha present Parliam'rnt Alberta bas � four to Saskatchewan's .six members; in 'the it will have seven to Saskatchewan's Un. ^This means that our province has |a slight ly higher proportion of the reprcwn-tation of the two provinces. Then Mr. IClebert went on to talk a.>out the blood-sucking corporations and said that tho hold-up of the oity of fc4inomon by the O.T.P. was a disgrace to a country whore li'bertywaf supposed Vo exist. Bnt It was open for Vr. ETtebert last session to have proposal an antl-bonuslng law, suoh as that whieh carried in Saskatoh -ewan, which would have made it impossible for the O.T.P. to have secured the bonus from EVltnonton. 'Lot him introduce it 'this session. Ho will never accomplish anything by simply talking about the tentacles of corporations that roach out and take the life-blood of ibo people, as he did on Tuesday. A Church of England deputation waited on the government at the end of the week consisting of Bishop I'inkhatiH Rev. H. A. Gray, Rev. H. II. Wilkinson, Rev. W. R. George, Rav. C. C. Hoyle, E. H. Riley, M. I'.P., end Bunioy tJrown. They pne-seiit\-''d a resolution of the Sjiiod reciting that no religious instruction can be givd to enact. -Among the requests to be maide of th? i Legislature are an eight hour day and a workmen's compensation adi while a by-wcokly pay day will be asked. Tho request for an eight hour day by-law, it is understood, is to carry eith it a proposal to attach a penalty to working underground more than eight hours in any capacity. It is said there is likely to be strong opposition to a Penalty clausa in an eight hour day law, aa, while the mine operators do not> onject to the eight hour day being granted by law, they do not want tha penalty for working overtime owing to the conditions peculiar to coal mining In I'ha Pass. T%iB arises chiefly out 0f the car situation. Thcas condit -I ions make H necessary to work a ten hour loaiding shift. In order to do that drivers, trappers, bratitice men, etc., Work ten hours, being paid for t^o hours overtime. If these nven were prohibited from working.overtime, although paid for doing so, H would cut down tha output of the mines very consider -Ably and aa soxee of the mines never get more than enough cars to iowd a ten*houf shlfn, the operators say It will be impossible to make up for the reduci>4 output except by loading two shifts. It is on thcsoground ing two Ehifts. It is on thescj grounds that the opposition to tha- pena.lty clasue Rill be baaed. It in not consi'dcred likely however, that the govemniieAt will grant' a provision so ntanlfcstly advcrso to tho interests of the coal mining industry while there is little doubt thut the straigli^ ei&^t hour day as provided in the prencnt agreements, will be enacted into law.

Tisdale and James Staples acrivcd on the belated train Wed-nesdaj- mornlnS, having been since Sunday getting from Medioiae Riat to Cranbrook. Mr. Staples said that travelling this winter was a bitter experience for any oWi who had iniulged. "Why, it only took about five or six inches of saow ta s'top a train, as everywhere along ths track the snow packed Ilka iea. iWe were botihsred a good doal by hungry cattle that had wandered i�-jto the cuts to get out of the deep sno'w. The poor creatures werei skinned and bleeding up to their knees, and they would crowd onto the railroad track to g�t out of the �deep snow and then refuse to leave their haven of refuge. At St. Mary's bridge there was a j-earling stuck between tho tit'S. The brakeman got the animal off and started back t� the train when 'ha was attacked toy a large steer that ran kim arouwl the front of tho engine. The brake-man sought safety between two ears but nut before the animal had struck him once with its horns. The braka-man tried to scare the aaiinal with hislaniern. which was eauffhC en tha 'long horn of tho steer and the last ths passengers saw of either lantern or stser, was as 'they pasand out of sight over the prairi�, ths lighted lantern swinging from one of tiib ^ aainmls horns, like a sigaat of daa  ger."
